Obie Trice, 42, and his girlfriend were fighting at his home when her son intervened, investigators said.

When she and her son tried to leave, Trice allegedly went and got a gun. The teen tried to take it from Trice. The two struggled and the firearm discharged, investigators said.

The teen was struck in the groin and taken to a hospital with a fractured pelvis. He was later released.

Deputies ordered Trice to drop a handgun, which they said was unregistered, and then he was taken into custody. Trice was arrested and charged with aggravated felony assault, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

Trice has had previous run-ins with authorities. Sheriff’s officials said he was convicted of assault and battery in 2002. He was shot while driving on a Detroit-area highway in December 2005.
